Horse Racing tips: 7 delightful punts for Down Royal on Friday

The Racing Post’s tipster feels it could be heaven if these seven land today.



13:00 Logo Hunter @ 15/8

Plenty of progressive sorts in here and it’s hard to put a line through the majority of these, but a chance is taken on LOGO HUNTER.

The form of his debut could hardly be working out better with the winner Aloha Star, taking a Group 2 at the Curragh on Sunday and the yard’s runners often take a big step forward from their debut.

Grammata has already shown a useful level of ability and rates as the main danger.

13:30 Earls

Eddie Lynam does well with his sprinters, and it might be worth taking a chance on EARLS who may be able to benefit from a combination of first-time headgear and a drop back to the minimum trip.

All About Ivy has been dropped another 2lb by the assessor and should be thereabouts once again.

14:00 Awkwafina

Toora Loora looks sure to be thereabouts again after a string of placed efforts and first-time headgear may help get her head in front, but a chance is taken on AWKWAFINA.

She took a step forward from debut when placed at Leopardstown last time and there are signs in her pedigree she could do even better over this longer trip.

14:35 Elizabethofaragon @ 3/1

Wilderness has to be respected in her four-timer bid, but the well-bred ELIZABETHOFARAGON left her maiden form behind when bolting up at Leopardstown earlier this month and the sister to Kingsbarns could easily build on that now, despite a much higher mark.

15:10 Amlad

A competitive contest with several of these holding live chances, but preference is for the well handicapped AMLAD who should find one of these coming his way before long.

He’s closely matched with the likes of Drummer and Noble Intention, and arrives much better off at the weights with the latter for a narrow defeat.

15:45 Baby Zeus

There was lots to like about BABY ZEUS‘ (NAP) comeback effort at Navan and the form of that premier handicap has been boosted since, with the winner Delphi subsequently landing the Listed Nijinsky Stakes and the eye-catching third Sonnyboyliston claiming a Curragh handicap since.

Ger Lyons’ gelding has always given the impression he could be better than a mark of 90 and he gets the nod from a handy draw.

There are no shortage of dangers, though, with runaway Leopardstown winner Red Kelly difficult to assess of his new mark and Sunchart dropping in class.

16:20 Chiricahua

CHIRICAHUA encountered some smart sorts on his first couple of starts and can bounce back to form here after struggling in an Irish Derby that proved a shade messy for one or two in behind.

He came open his account at the expense of Oh So True and Classify, both of whom have solid credentials if getting back to something like they showed on their penultimate starts respectively.
